Women from Saratoga Springs and across New York use XEOMIN® to fade imperfections. This wrinkle-fighting injectable boasts all the power of BOTOX®—but with a streamlined, “naked” formula. Dr. Jean Buhac and her highly trained team are passionate about creating flattering, natural-looking results for their patients with XEOMIN. This effective injectable reduces wrinkles and fine lines and smooths out crow’s feet, frown lines, and more.
How XEOMIN Works
XEOMIN is an injectable neuromodulator. Like BOTOX, it uses an FDA-approved active ingredient known as botulinum toxin type A to relax the muscles that pull on the skin. However, XEOMIN differs from BOTOX in a meaningful way: XEOMIN’s formula doesn’t contain any additives. It uses a “naked,” purified form of the specialized neurotoxin, helping you achieve the same results as BOTOX without any unnecessary ingredients.
XEOMIN Treatment Areas & Benefits
XEOMIN carefully targets the tiny facial muscles that form “dynamic wrinkles” when your face makes expressions. It is a versatile product and can address the signs of aging in many areas of the face. Popular options include:
- Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- “Smoker’s lines” around the lips
- Vertical muscle bands along the neck
One added benefit of XEOMIN’s “naked” protein is that it is less likely to cause allergic reactions. The shorter ingredient list can also help prevent desensitization to the product, ensuring your results stay noticeable and satisfying.
What To Expect
Like BOTOX, a XEOMIN session typically takes around 15 to 20 minutes. After cleansing your face, your provider will gently mark your desired treatment areas. A small, thin needle is used to administer the product, and you may experience a brief stinging sensation. The number of injections will vary depending on the number of areas to be treated.
As XEOMIN is a nonsurgical treatment, it requires no downtime. You can return to work or home immediately after your injection session. A cold compress or over-the-counter pain medication can be used to treat any temporary discomfort.
Your XEOMIN results will gradually develop over the course of a few days. You can expect to see the full wrinkle-fighting effects of the treatment around 1 week after your session. Results typically last for 3 to 4 months, depending on age and skin quality. We recommend scheduling regular follow-up treatments to maintain your new youthful appearance. You may also want to add other complementary treatments such as dermal fillers to enhance your anti-aging results.
